Financial Inclusion Fund

The Financial Inclusion Fund (FIF) was a government initiative to tackle financial exclusion. It targeted three priority areas: access to free face-to-face money advice; access to banking services; and access to affordable credit.

The project led by GMMAP is funded to increase availability of face-to-face debt advice to financially excluded clients. The project have been running since 2006, helping nationwide 70,000 clients per year. The Financial Inclusion Fund has now ended but has been replaced from 2011 with the Face to Face Debt Advice Programme.
